OK, so with the X-Wing we have a couple of preset poses for it, and the seating configuration is basically that of a real-world dogfighter, but the TIEs have a different setup altogether. Model poses and other still shots where everything associated with the hull and cockpit are little more than props and decoration are one thing, but actually placing the pilot into a flight-ready position is another.


So I'm guessing this here in red are the flight controls, with the lower extensions being the pedals.

And here is what I'm guessing is a base position of V4 in the cockpit, snug as can be. Not bad, fits the seat well, but the controls are well out of reach and the feet aren't on the pedals

Outside view looking in, this time the feet are on the pedals, the hands are nowhere near the stick

Here's hand (sort of) on the stick. That's an awkward position to hold and any more cramming with the figure is going to lead to clipping. Note that the feet are not on the pedals, here


TIE scaled to about 35%, which has it comparable to the proportions of the X-Wing

So will we then be having updated models?



Model shots like this are fun, but sometimes utilitarian ones are necessary when storytelling.

Which is fine - there is quite a bit to those insides, after all.

And peeking around in that game, they do look nice.
